1st pick Sixers!!!
We'll see what the Nuggets do this year. Out with Igoudala, in with Nate Robinson. And JaVale McGee is the starting center.
I still think they should have been the Krew.
Or the Jazz! :bigahh:
Seriously folks, how's the Jazz scene in Salt Lake City?? It isn't like New Orleans I'll tell you that!
I wish the NBA would go away.
So THAT's why we hold guns to people's heads forcing them to post in threads they don't like.
Hey, whats wrong with the nba now??? It's fun. People like it. Haha, I could say the same about the national hockey league.
SXM seems to share your feelings- absolutely no mention of any games and they just canceled "Off The Dribble".
Has it started yet?
It might be more interesting if there was a salary cap. Same big market teams win over and over. Be nice if everyone had the same chance.

Th NBA has a soft salary cap which is bulls it. Almost every team went over the 58 million mark, many way, way over. Salary cap in NBA is a joke.
How well did the teams do at the bottom of this list? Strange how the teams that spend 25-35 million over this so called cap always seem to make a deep run in the playoffs huh?
Doing my best Keanu Reeves’ “Whoa” when looking at a few of these apples especially the Lakers almost hitting $100 million and equaling The Cavs and Rockets combined. To the Lakers defense, they also have more talent than the Cavs and Rockets combined.
The reason LA’s is so high is because of the following
Kobe – $27,849,000 ($30 million next year)
Dwight – $19,261,200
Gasol – $19,000,000
Nash – $8,900,000
Metta – $7,258,960
Jamison is a real steal on the team at only $1,352,181 especially considering they are going to pay Steve Blake $4 million.

The Pacers made the playoffs last year (damn near made it to the finals.) The cavaliers weren't horrible and have some young talent. I don't think money buys wins in the NBA (like the Lakers have proven) it's all about team chemistry. The nuggets made it last year (albeit exiting after the first round again) with a pack of no-names. Now they have Nate Robinson added to the mix.

Eh, teams rise up every now and then but consistent winners and championship teams are the ones who spend the big bucks in the NBA
To a certain extent, but that didn't help the Lakers much. I still say it's all about Chemistry. As much as people like to diss the Heat, Lebron, Bosh and Wade play well together, that's what makes them defending champions.
Season starts tonight. Maybe if Derrick Rose stays healthy the Bulls can displace the heat as Champs. Should be interesting. I'll probably invest in League Pass Broadband by the end of the month or so.
It's not going to be the Lakers, so I really don't care who wins it this year
I would be on guard for three teams in the West ...
The Warriors. They will surprise teams.
The Clippers. They just might pull it together & make the finals.
The Rockets. They have whatshisface now. He will do better with them than he did with the Lakers
The teams in the East to watch out for ...
The Nets. Kidd wants to win.
The Nicks. MWP is home.
The Lakers. If you can't beat the Lakers, you don't deserve to be in the playoffs (playoffs?)
